The Impact of the Slave Trade in Liverpool


This afternoon, we independently explored and evaluated the legacy of the slave trade in Liverpool and how our shameful past has influenced and impacted much of our architecture, music and culture in the city to this day. In order to show our understanding of what we have learnt throughout this topic, we created a presentation which embodied our prior knowledge of the slave trade and how its legacy can still be seen around Liverpool. 


Daniel says of the topic: "I have very much enjoyed learning about the Liverpool Slave Trade as I didn't know too much about it. Once you know about our past in Liverpool, it shows you a whole different view of how our city came to be. Although some of the lessons were quite sad to learn about, I think that it is important that we know about the city's past because it is something that we must acknowledge in our lives."
